  • Minor question, OH&S. Do you happen to know the specifics for what fully happens when comments are disabled then re-enabled via admin controls? (I'm looking into the possible options for tackling the load of comments) If not then never mind, I'll try asking on Community Central.

    P.S. Do you reckon the episode image template idea from a few weeks back would be feasible or unfeasible?

    • No idea. Wouldn't that only disable new comments?

      Might need to remind me about that template idea.

        Loading editor
    • I've come across conflicting information previously - some say that disabling the comments hides the existing comments and they return once it is switched back on, others say that it wipes them out.

      The template idea might not be feasible - what I was wondering was whether it would be possible to rig up a template which produces a link leading to the Special:WhatLinksHere for the page it is on, but set to Files. (e.g. Links for Haimura, Files (long link))

      The reason I was thinking about whether this would be possible is because when the systematic sweep for the images is eventually carried out, one of the things that will be added will be a link to the article covering its source. This source link could be used to keep track of images on the wiki from a particular source. Another thing was, if it is possible to make a template that automatically links to the File-specific WhatLinksHere, it could in turn be placed into the infoboxes for stuff like novels or episodes (in a non-obtrusive manner) for quick access.

    • Regarding template: I've done some quick research and it seems like its relatively simple to implement.

      [{{canonicalurl:Special:WhatLinksHere|target={{PAGENAMEE}}&namespace=6}} Files]

      • Use {{canonicalurl}} to generate the url text.
      • Use {{PAGENAMEE}} to generate the article name with underscores for spaces.

      Similar templates in regards to URLs/links can be made depending on what other things you want to link to.

      I'm sure you can decide on a name for the template that makes sense and is short and simple. Unless you want to make it more multi-purpose; in which case more tweaking is needed.

    • Thanks very much, OH&S.

        Loading editor
    • This isn't something which can be carried out yet, but would it be possible to give the bot an identification sweep task at some point, OH&S?

      P.S. I created a new category and tracking template yesterday for a large-scale project. Details here. Also, I've asked about the comment stuff on Community Central and got an answer of what would happen to the existing comments if commenting was disabled temporarily (hopefully it won't be required, but if the worst came to the worst, it won't result in the loss of the existing ones).

      P.P.S. Any thoughts on the matter of the private juvenile hall?

    • Just so you know OH&S, MassEdit has been tweaked a bit.

    • We may need to check a few things regarding that project going on at Community Central as it may affect our activities a bit. Submitting request for database dump update.

      Edit: Database dump updated.

    • Due to the size of certain tasks, I'm trying to make my own bot account, though I'm having some trouble in connecting it to AutoWikiBrowser as suggested by Community Central's Help:Bots. Any advice, OH&S?

        Loading editor
    • I haven't gone down that route with my bot account. I instead prefer to use javascript scripts imported from the Developers Wiki as its less of a hassle to use. I might look into it a bit later though.

        Loading editor
    • Just to be sure, is it the case that you manually log on and input your sweeps without using additional software, OH&S?

        Loading editor
    • Yeah. I have multiple web browsers installed on my PC and I use different ones for different purposes. I use a Firefox-variant browser to log into my main account; while I use regular Firefox to log into my bot account. This saves me the hassle of logging on and off. In fact I have shortcuts to the profile pages for both of my accounts on my desktop. But do what ever works for you.

      On my bot account, I import the JS scripts from the Developer Wiki and don't use any extra software. At the time, I couldn't be bothered to learn how to connect it to other software; and mass edit scripts were sufficient for what I was attempting to do.

        Loading editor
    • I see. It probably would be best to take your approach, rather than waste time trying to get the extra software to work.

      The large-scale operation I had planned was a series of sweeps to identify which images are lacking information (either description or licensing) without having to go through the whole lot manually, followed by a sweep to add a basic structure and tracking tags to them (ImageReqInfo) - giving us a convenient list via WhatLinksHere.

        Loading editor
    • It all depends on whether you are lucky enough to find a JS script on the Dev Wiki that satisfies your need. If not, then looking into AWB might be the way to go. I'm not sure; I need to read up on what AWB actually does.

        Loading editor
    • Just so you know, OH&S, I've got a plan together for a large-scale image operation ('Image Information Survey') and am planning to make a start today.

      Edit: Looks like I may have to streamline it a bit more...

    • Just a heads up: I'll be unable to make any edits to the wiki between Nov-24 and Dec-13 due to going overseas. I'll be back to touch up the site before Railgun T starts.

        Loading editor
    • Understood, OH&S. Hope you have a good trip. Are you in the picture regarding what we've been doing here recently?

        Loading editor
    • Can't say that I am. Will catch up when I get back.

        Loading editor
    • Understood. I'll prepare a recap to get you up to speed when you get back. Hope you have a good trip.

        Loading editor
    • Hope you had a nice trip. OH&S. As Herald is in a similar position with regards to recapping, I'm going to start a new thread on my wall for a joint recap.

        Loading editor
    • No worries. I'm kinda recovering from a bad case of the cold/flu I caught in the final week of my trip. But my eyes were across the recent title reveal for LN series 3.

        Loading editor
    • Hope you feel better soon. I'm currently compiling the recap.

        Loading editor
    • I'm not completely satisfied with the recap and accompanying stuff, but I'm declaring them done. If not, I'll be there until 2021.

        Loading editor
    • This might be a bit late, but Merry Christmas, OH&S.

        Loading editor
    • Likewise, Inept.

      I've updated the anime slider images.

        Loading editor
    • Thanks. Are you feeling better now? And was the recap satisfactory?

        Loading editor
    • Yeah, I'm feeling better but I was bedridden for longer than I anticipated and sort of become a hermit now.

      The recap was very detailed. Though maybe for your own sanity, simplify it next time.

      I need to figure out what to work on next.

        Loading editor
    • That would probably be the better approach - it took me a week to compile that recap and it took up most of my focus for that week.

      Are there any other things you need filling in on?

        Loading editor
    • Not especially. For all intents and purposes, the franchise has been in quiet mode since October and there isn't much that I've missed.

        Loading editor
    • Is there any wiki-related stuff which needs elaborating on?

      Just so you know OH&S, I'm going to have my bot carry out a sweep to put in temporary redirects and lay the foundations for the new episodes.

      Edit: Sweep complete.

        Loading editor
    • Looks like you've got your bot working. You've my task a lot easier with that sweep. I'll update the list of episodes page then.

        Loading editor
    • At the level of manual operation. I still need to get some things in order before it can carry out certain tasks I have in mind for it.

      What do you think of the Shared Drafts, OH&S?

        Loading editor
    • If my understanding is correct, you're trying to centralize the work on different projects so that anyone can contribute to them; specifically using the functionality provided by wiki templates?

      You know what, that's actually a brilliant idea. It's similar to something like GitHub where everyone can work on the project together instead of doing things separately and there being clear documented changes between edits by different users.

        Loading editor
    • I was thinking that it would be a bit more flexible for joint work than the Open Sandbox idea.

      With the top bar, the users working on the joint draft can place the template wherever they like on their sandbox, view its current state on their sandbox, edit it with a click from their sandbox and then jump back once they've finished.

      If it is OK OH&S, could you try one of them out at some point and see if there are any areas in which they could be improved? At the moment, there are fifty active ones and ten inactive ones (I got a bit carried away), as well as a template for their overview and development.

        Loading editor
    • I don't know; its basic intended function appears to work fine. I've added myself to Shared Draft 31 as a test.

      Certainly there are a lot of templates. I'm wondering which of those could be cleared or consolidated together. At this stage, I'm not too concerned with the number.

      It would be good for there to eventually a page dedicated to the list of shared drafts as a directory that can be linked to on the front page slider/intro template.

      On another topic entirely, I'm thinking of updating the Franchise Overview template. I'm not quite happy with Dark Matter getting its own space despite there being only one special chapter and announcement for a continuation. I'm thinking of using that space as a general 'Other' section and grouping together Virtual-On and any other special manga that's serializing.

    • Concur regarding the Franchise Overview idea.

      With regards to the Shared Drafts, There is a list of what they are currently being used for on the overview/development template page. Some of them are currently being used for collection purposes (e.g. collecting and confirming all of the R-S/anime design images on the wiki, gathering the different term Nihongo and localizations etc), some for tracking and monitoring (e.g. the current status of the chapter/episode page sections), some for regularly updated tasklists (rather than in repeated posts, e.g. the image tasklist) and a number I'm thinking of using for a brainstorming session (Magic and Academy City being the main two in mind at the moment).

      One idea which has just come to mind is rigging some sort of mechanism so that the list updates itself automatically depending on the subject listed on the template itself, though that might require a fair amount of tinkering and is not as urgent as other tasks we have on the go.

    • Just reassigned SD28 for a Railgun T Shared Tasklist.

      OH&S, can you think of any improvements to make to the field structure for the tables in SD33-35?

      Edit (31/12/2019): Just so you know OH&S, I'm planning to start new threads when the New Year (& Decade) starts. I'm also hoping to restart the Image Information Survey sweeps soon.
